For Student of the Year, we have an outside committee of dedicated community members who determines the winner from the applicants. For coaches/volunteer awards, the District votes after the Committee determines that eligibility qualifications have been met. For WSD, we have an application. After students complete the recommendation, their coaches are notified and have to fill out a recommendation. Then they’re blind-ranked by the Committee. All students who applied, were ranked in the top 15 by the Committee, and did not qualify in an event they ranked higher than WSD on their single-entry letter are then interviewed by the WSD Coach and a neutral coach. The coach is formed to complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
